Apache CouchDB is still another open source NoSQL database. It uses JSON to store data, JavaScript as its query language and MapReduce and HTTP for an API. CouchDB was created in 2005 by former IBM Lotus Notes developer Damien Katz as a storage system for a large scale object database. The BBC uses CouchDB for its dynamic content platforms, while Credit Suisse's commodities department uses it to store configuration details for its Python market data framework.
